On 1 April 2019 Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council will be replaced by a single district council called West Suffolk Council. It will entirely replace the borough and district councils but will continue to deliver the same services while finding improved ways of supporting communities, businesses and the local economy. Over the next few weeks you may notice changes to the website, forms, letters and emails, and there will be limited access to some of our online systems as we prepare for the creation of the new council.
Our non-personal data is open and available for you to access and to use in applications.
Achieving greater transparency of public bodies is a central theme of the Government's programme. To support our commitment to transparency, involvement and innovation we are working towards making all public data (that is not sensitive or personal) freely available to view and download in a variety of formats.
Visit our data.westsuffolk.gov.uk website to view the available data.
This data includes:
Every councillor has a locality budget. This is funding that councillors can use to support community groups in their wards. Each councillor has £2,500 to spend throughout the year on projects that benefit the community.
The spreadsheets below show what has currently been spent by each councillor. Councillors are working with communities all the time and the spreadsheets do not reflect agreements that are still to be processed. They also don't reflect any current discussions that councillors may be having with their local communities about other funding options.
